Young farmers have teamed up with the Rotary Club of Diss and District to put up a sparkling Christmas tree on the Mere.
Diss Young Farmers Club traditionally assist the Rotary Club with the festive activity, braving the cold at the start of the month on December 9.
Edward Saunders, a young farmer and Wymondham College student, said: “On behalf of those members who wrapped up to put the tree up, and everyone at Diss Young Farmers Club, we would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!”
Club members will be hoping to avoid a repeat of 2011 when high winds of 80mph toppled their 20ft tree, which was later voluntarily rescued from the Mere by fire fighters.
